Who can tell me which hilariously funny TV sitcom that quote is from, and who said it?Â
Here it is again:
‘If you can eat this cheese without farting, you can sleep with my sister’
I’ll give you a clue: we always seem to discover TV shows years later than anyone else, and we’ve just started watching this one. Actually we’re part-way through series one, and I think it’s on series six now, so we have a fair way to go before we catch up.
Beautifully scripted and acted, without a single weak link among all the main characters, this show is a situation comedy with a difference. It exploits the comic potential of a friendship between a group of people from a section of society representing about 2% of the population … plus one other. The ‘one other’ is a 98-percenter – a ‘normal’ person. It’s witty, it’s clever, and the comic timing is impeccable. You may not, in fact, like it, but I love it. So there!
It’s a rare thing that a sitcom will produce belly laughs in this house, but this one will do it. No matter what mood I’m in, it’s guaranteed to make me laugh out loud enough to miss the next bit. I like that in a TV series! Laughter is important.
Interestingly, a little while before we began watching this series, my doctor was once again a tad concerned about my blood pressure, which was something over 91. Fortunately, he is not the sort to hand out pills like sweets, and he said we’d see what it was like next time. This is usually a cue for me to go home and tell OH he has to monitor my blood pressure for me regularly for a while, because I suffer from White Coat Syndrome.Â Show me a sphygmomanometer and my blood pressure shoots up about twenty points.Â In fact, just mention the words ‘blood pressure’ and it will shoot up.Â At first, my blood pressure will even shoot up when it’s taken at home, in a relaxed and non-threatening environment, but after a week of twice daily readings it settles down to a much more acceptable level.
OH took my BP a few minutes ago and it was 122/74, which I believe is pretty damn good. In fact, in the last few weeks the diastolic reading has hit 90 perhaps twice or three times, most readings being between the low seventies and mid eighties and I’m enormously happy about that!
Maybe it’s all the laughter.
Oh .. you want to know what show that quote is from, and who said it?
And by the way …
